Picture Perfect

Week two in Laguna Beach and I have been feeling a bit lonely, aimlessly walking around and indulging in excessive amounts of retail therapy!

I finally decided to walk into this store I had been passing by for some time…mainly because I couldn’t help looking at this dress, knowing if I got a closer look I would be compelled to try it on!

But something other than this exquisite dress was luring me in…and as soon as I walked into Green Cube I knew what had been calling out to my subconscious.

Finally some art I can get on board with! Don’t get me wrong, I love going to museums and galleries, but I have no clue about art. I usually find a piece that draws me in, that makes me feel happy on a deeper level, and then I just stare at it for awhile. Trying to absorb its meaning, and why it affects me so much.

For obvious and maybe some not so obvious reasons these pieces overwhelmed me.

Something about them was very familiar to me. Almost as if I knew the artist personally. I wasn’t sure if they were paintings or photographs. Either way they captivated my heart and I felt that familiar ache and longing to buy another horse!

This one officially stole my heart…

I struck up a friendly conversation with the lovely sales woman, and told her about my blog and asked permission to take these photos. She happily let me shoot away and directed me to a trunk full of horse t-shirts by the same artist whom she called Kim.

“You mean Kimerlee Curl!?” I asked even though I knew I was correct. Realizing I do actually know the artist personally!

The trunk was of course filled with the special Horseworship shirts that Kimerlee had introduced to LA Saddlery!

They truly are wearable art! And I am so happy to help promote her cause Return To Freedom!

I was elated at my discovery of this little shop with reminders of home to distract me from my loneliness. I also found some fantastic equestrian inspired jewelry!

The feathers earrings were so fantastic!

But the best find of the day were these awesome horse rings!

Don’t worry I got the designers name so we may have them at LA Saddlery very soon!!!

And I of course had to buy a little something for myself! I was intrigued by these wrap bracelets that looked like very cool abstract versions of Shrinky Dinks!

I did not however try that amazing dress on…but I did get a look at it from behind on my way out….WOW!!!
